We have kept you posted on what the Yankees have been up to on social media ever since baseball shut down back in March. Although the baseball season is over, we’ll still provide weekly updates on what your favorite Yankees do when they’re not on the diamond!

Yankees celebrate Christmas

What can get you into the holiday spirit more than Masahiro Tanaka dressed up as Santa Claus? I can’t think of many other things! Although, I’m sure Tanaka could have taken a better picture for us, but this will have to do.

Luis Severino and Mariano Rivera post family photos

The Yankees had two pitchers, one former and one current, who posted family photos in front of the tree. They were both also in plaid patterned pajamas, which is a funny coincidence. It’s good to see them spending time with their families around the holidays during this time.

Aaron Boone

Speaking of spending time with family, Yankees manager Aaron Boone posted this picture of him and his family on Christmas. Boone is with his wife, his four children, and of course, his dog. The Yankee skipper is a third-generation MLB player. Could one of his three sons become a fourth?

Celebrating in the sun

Aaron Hicks, Luke Voit, and Miguel Andújar all enjoyed the holiday in the heat rather than the cold. Hicks was chilling by the pool, Voit was in Tampa with his wife and their dog, and Andújar is in the Dominican Republic as he continues to play in the winter league there with the Toros del Este. You can check how he’s been performing with them here.

Kyle Higashioka

Higashioka celebrated Christmas with his wife Alyse, and just like many of his other teammates, they posed with their dog. Higgy played a big role in the 2020 season for the Yankees as he caught a majority of the team’s playoff games. He hit .250 with a .771 OPS and four homers last season. He will most likely compete with Gary Sánchez for playing time in 2021 if Sánchez can’t return to his former self.
